Jari Francis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Branches Bundle

Today’s share is from Thoughtful Branches, the new limited time only stamp set bundle, available to you beginning August 2, 2016.  

 

Thoughtful Branches

 

I’m also playing along with the TFIFc65.  I used the dies from the Thoughtful Branches bundle for my cutting.  

 

TGIF JULY 2016 Challenges-005

 

 

I have actually had this bundle a few days now and have been dying to try it out, but I had 4 grandsons visiting last week and stamping got put on the back burner!  I will really miss them, though…….

 

 

Thoughtful Branches

 

 

When you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, one of the extra perks is that we can purchase many stamp sets ahead of our customers-and this one just happens to fall into that category.  I have been advertising the Thougthful Branches bundle for a few weeks now, and you have probably seen some samples on Pinterest-don’t you just love this set?   Until I received mine, I did not realize that I could create a hydrangea with it.  

I actually die cut two flower tops, one in Elegant Eggplant and one in Perfect Plum, because that is kind of what mine look like when they bloom.  I offset the Elegant Eggplant onto the Perfect Plum when gluing together and once dry, I added Clear Wink of Stella all over the top, then placed a few Pearls Basic Jewels around the flower. The leaves are die cut in Wild Wasabi.  

 

Thoughtful Branches

 

The Whisper White panel was dry embossed with the Brick Wall TIEF, then glued to the Elegant Eggplant card base.  I cut a narrow panel of Perfect Plum from the Regals DSP stack and framed it with a little larger panel of Perfect Plum, then glued down my hydrangea and leaves to it.  I wrapped a length of Elegant Eggplant Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel and tied a bow on the stem before popping this panel onto the front with dimensionals.  

I chose a sentiment from the Thoughtful Branches set and stamped it in Versa Mark on to Elegant Eggplant, dusted it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.  Once it cooled, I used the die from the Rose Garden Thinlets set to cut it out.  It is added to the front with dimensionals.

 

Thoughtful Branches

 

I really wanted to use 2 flowers on the front of my card, so I originally die cut two of each color, but when I decided it wouldn’t work, I set them aside to add to the inside.  They also have been enhanced with Clear Wink of Stella, though I do not think you can tell from this angle.  The sentiment is stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink.  

Make sure you add Thoughtful Branches to your wish list!  Ordering is only a few days away!

A complete product list is at the end of this post, as well as card stock cuts in inches.

Falling Flowers for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner

 

My share for our hop today is from Falling Flowers from Stampin’ Up!

 

Falling Flowers

 

 

We are working with this sketch:

Happy Stampers sketch challenge

 

Falling Flowers is another great stamp set you can bundle with the May Flowers Framelits dies and save 10%.

 

Falling Flowers

 

I don’t do a lot of water coloring, but I decided to do it with the flower images from Falling Flowers.  I stamped the flowers with my black Stazon ink, then used my Aqua Painter with Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach inks.  After they were all dry, I came back with my Black Stampin’ Write Marker and added some details to the centers of the flowers.

 

Falling Flowers

 

The Old Olive card base was stamped with the vine image from the set in Old Olive ink, then I placed the front in my Brick Wall Textured Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  My flower panel is framed in Flirty Flamingo and adhered to the front of the card with liquid glue. I used a sentiment from Flourishing Phrases and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White, then die cut it with the smallest Banners Framelit Dies. I trimmed the length a little so that the Flirty Flamingo banner would peek out on either end.  It was popped onto the front with dimensionals.  To complete the card, I added 3 Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Stampin’ Up! Weather Together

My share for today is from Weather Together, one of the new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets/bundles.  I am loving all of the new bundles, not only because there is a 10% discount when you bundle, but because of all of the awesome thinlets, framelets and punches that help make your card extra special and, easy to put together!

 

Weather Together

 

First, I added a strip of Sof Sky Subtles DSP to the top of a Whisper White panel with glue, then I stamped the raindrop images from Weather Together in Soft Sky onto the Whisper White.  I framed this panel with a panel of Calypso Coral using liquid glue to attach them.

 

 

Weather Together

 

Next, I stamped the umbrella top in Calypso Coral and the handle in Early Expresso ink onto a panel of Whisper White thick card stock and die cut them using the Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I used a little glue to adhere the handle to the back of the umbrella top, then attached the whole piece to the front of the card with dimensionals.

I stamped some clouds in Soft Sky and used the matching Framelits die to cut them out.  They are added to the front with dimensionals.

 

Weather Together

 

The sentiment is also found in the Weather Together set and is stamped in Early Expresso onto a panel of Soft Sky, then die cut with the banner from the Large Numbers Framelits die set.  To finish off the front, I added a small bow using the Calypso Coral baker’s twine and the silver heart from my Metallic Enamel Shapes.  

 

Weather Together

 

For the inside, I added more of the Soft Sky DSP to the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel, then stamped another umbrella  in Calypso Coral and Early Expresso inks. ( I used a different image from the set for the handle). The sentiment is  also stamped in Early Expresso.

 

Don’t you love Weather Together?  Lots of fun images and sentiments plus die cuts!!  Check it out on page 55 of the Annual catalog.

Flourishing Phrases for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner

 

Flourishing Phrases is my pick for today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop color challenge.  Wow, there are 18 Flourishing Phrases stamps and 10 Flourish Thinlets Dies in this new bundle package! 

Here are our colors:

Happy Stampers Color Challenge

And, here is what I created:

 

Flourishing Phrases

 

I started by stamping the floral images from Flourishing Phrases in Cucumber Crush onto a panel of Whisper White then, colored in the flowers with my Flirty Flamingo marker.  I inked up the sentiment in Basic Black and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the placement in the bottom corner.

 

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases by Cardiology by Jari 011

 

Next, I stamped the large flower image from Flourishing Phrases in Flirty Flamingo onto a panel of Whisper White and fussy cut it. Then, I moved on to the Flourish Thinlets and die cut the larger flower in Flirty Flamingo, glued it to the fussy cut flower and added a Daffodil Delight Enamel.  Next, I die cut the leaves in Cucumber crush and glued them to the back of the flower.

 

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases by Cardiology by Jari 007

I pulled out some Cucumber Crush 5/8 ” Mini Striped Ribbon and some Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon and layered them on the card using Tear and Tape Adhesive.  The flower and leaves were added using dimensionals.  The whole art panel was then popped onto a panel of Cucumber Crush with dimensionals. My Cucumber Crush panel was attached to the Flirty Flamingo base with liquid glue.  To add a little more Daffodil Delight for our challenge, I created a butterfly using one of the small butterfly images from Papillon Potpourri.

 

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases by Cardioloogyo by Jari 010

I kept the inside simple and added a strip of Flirty Flamingo that was die cut from one more of the Flourish Thinlets.

Card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post.

Foxy Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

13592748_10210100021645360_3082821684988557281_n

 

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Birthday Theme Blog Hop!  I have a Foxy Friends card I made for another grandson’s birthday coming up next week.

 

 

Foxy

 

The Foxy Friends set is really a lot of fun to play with. And, there is a punch you can bundle with the stamps and save 10%.  I started by stamping the fox image in Calypso Coral and added the legs and facial features with Tuxedo Memento Black.  Then, I stamped the log image in Smoky Slate and cut it out with my Paper Snips.  The banner is from the Host Time of Year set and cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits die.

 

 

Foxy

 

I used one of the new Sweet and Sassy heart shaped framelits to cut out a heart in Pool Party card stock, then ran it through my Big Shot in the Woodgrain TIEF.  Next, I taped over 2 of the hearts in the conversation bubble stamp then inked it in Memento ink, removed the tape and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White and fussy cut it out.  I pulled out the Happy stamp from Thoughtful Banners and stamped it in Calypso Coral inside the bubble and added a heart Metallic Enamel shape.

 

Foxy

 

 

I used some more of the images from Foxy Friends to stamp the footprints, trees and mushrooms for the inside of the card.  My sentiments came from Celebrate Today and You’re So Sweet.  

 

Card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! You’re Sublime Thanks

Today, I have a thank you card using the Stampin’ Up! You’re Sublime stamp set.  

 

You'e Sublime Thanks

 

The inspiration for my card is from the sketch over at Stamp, Ink and Paper Challenge #55.

SIP-Sketch-Challenge-55-800-768x994

 

Please head over there and check out all of the other great card makers playing along!

 

 

You're Sublime Thanks

 

 

I started by choosing two panels from the Blooms and Bliss DSP and adhering them to a panel of Rich Razzleberry  with glue.  Then, I cut a length of the Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon and placed it where the two panels of DSP met using some Tear and Tape Adhesive to attach it to the front and back.  I used dimensionals to attach this panel to the Sweet Sugarplum base.

 

 

You're Sublime Thanks

 

I did not want the wheelbarrow to be suspended on the paper, so I added the ground image from Sheltering Tree, stamping it in  Mint Macaron ink.  Then, I inked up the wheelbarrow of flowers image from You’re Sublime in Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White.  The flowers are colored in with Stampin’ Write Markers and blended a little with a blender pen.  I framed the art panel with a little larger panel of Rich Razzleberry glued them together and popped them onto the front with dimensionals.

 

 

You're Sublime Thanks

 

 

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from Floral Phrases and stamped it in Rich Razzleberry ink, then added a strip of the floral Blooms and Bliss DSP to the very bottom of my Whisper White panel.  And that’s it for my You’re Sublime Thank You card!  

 

 

 

Card stock cuts and products used will be at the end of the post.

You’re So Sweet for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner

 

You’re So Sweet from Stampin’ Up! is my stamp selection for this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop sketch challenge.  

 

July 7 - 2016

 

I love fresh peaches!  This year’s crop in Georgia has not disappointed and they certainly have been so sweet!  So, when I decided to use this Fruit Stand DSP, I knew I needed to add something about sweetness.  
You're So Sweet

 

For the sentiment, I chose a stamp from the You’re So Sweet stamp set, but I only used part of the stamp.  Because I only wanted only the part of the sentiment that says You’re So Sweet, I placed tape over the parts I did not want, inked the stamp, took off the tape, then stamped the image onto a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I used my Decorative Label Punch to punch it out.  I also punched out a label in Pear Pizzaz to use as a frame for my stamped one.  

 

 

You're So Sweet

 

 

The panel of Fruit Stand DSP is adhered to a panel of Peekaboo Peach with multipurpose glue, then I added a Delicate White Doily to the right side of the panel with more glue, before popping the panel onto the Pear Pizzaz card base with dimensionals.  I used my Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create a longer label in the Peekaboo Peach striped In Color DSP and created a bow with a length of Peekaboo Peach 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon

 

 

You're So Sweet

 

For the inside, I chose the sentiment from One Big Meaning and stamped it in Pekaboo Peach ink onto the Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut a peach from the Fruit Stand DSP, and adhered it to the bottom right corner with multipurpose glue. 

Card dimensions and Stampin’ Up! products used are at the end of the post..

Stampin’ Up! Floral Affection

Today’s share uses the new Floral Affection textured impressions embossing folder or TIEF for short.  

 

Floral Affection

 

The inspiration for the layout is from CAS(E) this sketch, #179.

CTS_179

 

I’m also playing along with the color challenge at Can You Case It #127.

 

CYCI127

 

I really love these colors together, don’t you?

 

Floral Affection

I started by dry embossing my Whisper White panel with the Floral Affection TIEF, then pulled out my Pear Pizzaz, Tempting Turquoise. and Night of Navy markers, and colored the raised images created by the embossing.  This art panel was then adhered to the Tempting Turquoise and Night of Navy Panels with glue.  Then, I popped the layered art panel onto the Pear Pizzaz card base with dimensionals.

 

Floral Affection

 

 

Next, I created a Night of Navy banner using my Banner Triple Punch and stamped it with a sentiment from Rose Wonder in Versa Mark and heat embossed it in Copper Embossing powder.  The flower images are from Love and Affection and they are also heat embossed with Copper powder.  By the way, the Love and Affection stamp set coordinates with the Floral Affection TIEF.  Check out the spread on pages 44 & 45 in the Annual catalog to see them together. 

 

Floral Affection

I re-created the outside image for the inside of my card using stamps from Love and Affection, and stamped them in Pear Pizzaz, Night of Navy and Tempting Turquoise inks.

Card stock cuts in inches and products used are at the end of the post.
